New show alert: MTV's 'Death Valley'

New show alert: MTV's 'Death Valley'

This is how I imagined the meeting at MTV went when they first discussed "Death Valley"

Producer 1: Hey, you know how zombies are popular?

Producer 2: Oh yeah. And vampires. I hear they're big.

Producer 3: And werewolves. We already have a show about a teenage werewolf, but why not another?

Producer 4: Oh my God, you guys. Why not put them all in the same show!

Producers 1, 2 and 3: Genius!

MTV's latest attempt at scripted fare is the horror-comedy "Death Valley," premiering at 10:30 p.m. Aug. 29. It's set in California's San Fernando...
